Weatherproof TTL Serial JPEG Camera with NTSC Video and IR LEDs

by anibalr on Fri Jan 25, 2013 6:29 pm

I am having difficulty using the Adafruit-VC0706 file. I followed the instruction to rename the file to Adafruit-VC0706 and the put it in the library. I see all the files but I am gettig errors when I upload the file to arduino. When I go to file, example I do see the Adafruit-VC0706.

ERRORS:
Adafruit_VC0706 cam = Adafruit_VC0706(&cameraconnection);

Adafruit_VC706 does not name a type

In one place you are using a dash and in another an underscore. Was this a typo or are you actually doing that? The file also have to be in a folder of the correct name.

1) I downloaded the Adafruit VC0706 Arduio library Github respository
2) After the file is uncompressed the folder is rename to Adafruit_VC0706
3) I went to the arduino library and place the Adafruit_VC0706 folder into libraries folder

In the screen shot, it shows up with the dashes instead of the underscore. And it looks like you have one level too many.

OH Ok I got the library in the proper folder ad it compile as expected. However I am unable to take pictures. First, downloaded the VC0706 Comm Tool and followed the instruction and I see video out from the TV. I just dont see any image comming out of the VC0706 Comm Tool.

If you are following the tutorial: http://learn.adafruit.com/ttl-serial-ca ... g-commtool
When you click "Stop FBuf" and "Sel File" you tell it where to save the file. Look at the file that was saved and see how big it is.

I am getting a "Cmd time out error" see attach for more info...





According to the instruction "There's no way to change
the image size from this program (easily) but we can do it using the Arduino sketch so just try it
out here to start."

I can see that a command timed out, but I cannot see what command it was.

Ok, when I press

Get Version -> I get Cmd time out

In the Fbuf control panel

Stop CFbuf -> I get Cmd time out
Stop NFbuf -> I get Cmd time out
